Priest Runes & Locations for Phase 3 of Season of Discovery (WoW Classic SoD)

Priest Runes & Locations in Season of Discovery (SoD)

Rune Engraving is a new system for Season of Discovery. It allows each class to tailor their gameplay experience by unlocking new unique abilities! In this guide you’ll find all of the runes that are currently available for Priests in Phase 3 of SoD. You can also see them all in our Season of Discovery Talent Calculator.

Priest Meditations

One important thing to note when collecting Priest runes is that many of them require Meditations. To gain your own race’s meditation, you will need to use the method you used for the quest to obtain the Penance rune. This is different for every race. Some runes also require a second mediation buff from another race. Check out our guide below for how to get your priest meditation buffs!
